No record of the previous source the client was connected is stored, so
it's impossible to extract only those users who have moved over.

not yet, there's a question on how best to achieve this generally,
handling cascading fallbacks make it awkward.

You can explicitly move all users via the admin interface, my version
does allow for running a nominated script at source start, which could
be a simple shell script containing curl 'moveclients' type command.
